Privie Garden Sheds

I always feel privilaged when people call me with the coolest projects to do. Here’s another one I painted in June 2012. Laura, the Exec. Director of the Orange Art Center, asked if I would be interested in painting one of four privies similar to the Thunder Box Road project in Texas. Info and pics at this link:

See the Daily Progress article below which explains how the students at Orange High School built the 4 privies from recycled bleachers and how they will be auctioned off as garden sheds on August 11 at the edible food fest in Orange, Virginia.

The Art Center will also have a booth at the food fest on August 11, 2012 where my lazy susans and fruit paintings will be available for sale.

When I saw what other artists had accomplished, I definitely wanted in. I sifted through hundreds of photos I had taken of Virginia when I first moved here two years ago. Wanting to capture more the mood and the feel, rather than a photo realistic painting, I decided on one of Virginia’s vineyards as my theme.

    Cool – I think I recognize that owl – didn’t it fly in from one of your earlier paintings?
